Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Mind’s Eye
A new exhibition focuses on the immediacy and visual intensity of the work of the French photographer and Magnum co-founder
Salle Posta Urrugne (France), presents Henri Cartier-Bresson’s L’Imaginaire d’après nature (The Minds Eye), from August 11 to November 1, 2016.
“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to ‘give a meaning’ to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry – it is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson
